Audrey Hepburn For The Modern Girl

I fully agree with the idea that thrifting is a lot like hunting for treasure. I spent months searching for these jeans and basically had a silent freak out when I found them last fall at a thrift store. After trying them on and finding they fit perfectly, I believe I walked out of the dressing wide eyed and said in a solemn voice to my mother "I found the pants."

So if they're so great, why have I not worn them for 6 months? Well, I'm lazy when it comes to alterations and finally caved and asked my mom (same one from the previous story) to take in the legs a bit. But now they're perfect! And for their inaugural wear, I did a nod to Audrey Hepburn and her chic 60s style. (I even made a quick #ootd video for you to enjoy below!)

But don't worry, 1980s.. I'll be back. ;)

Hollywood Hair

I spent my weekend the way any glamorous Hollywood starlet would. Granted they eat peanut butter in their pajamas, watch the Muppets Most Wanted weeks after it's release, and rub elbows with old people & babies at a birthday party. It may not be a scene from a movie, but it is a page from my life! I've been playing with my hair more lately, letting it be natural, and it's starting to resemble a screen siren of yesteryear. Hey, I don't hate it!

Speaking of movies, be sure to catch up with my last blog post that is a collab with my friend & fellow YouTuber Ruta. You don't want to miss out on a video jewelry tutorial with me & a really cool giveaway! View it by clicking here.
